In this version of Winterreise, not a single note by Schubert or a single word by Müller is changed. You hear what Schubert wrote in 1827 – only divided into parts: the cello plays exactly the same notes as the tenor for whom they were written, and the text is read before the music. This allows a totally new look onto both the still modern text as well as the music which gets far more attention without the text.
